Christian Louboutin is designing a pair of pumps in Barbie Pantone 219 Pink that will make their debut at the Mattel runway show during February’s fashion week in New York. “I guess I…

Attack Of The Zombie Barbie!

One of my favorite fashion bloggers, Oslo, Norway’s Are Sundnes of Paranaiv, has created this lovely Barbie of the Undead. No longer nice, blond, and sweet, Zombie Barbie is gently eaten, somewhat gray, and stands over a random limb that she was likely gnawing upon. Bad Undead Barbie! Flesh-eating Barbie and a gorilla-My Pretty Pony…

Creepy Or Cool? Barbie Baubles

Personally, I think these are really rad. Made by Etsy retailer Margaux Lange, these earrings, necklaces, and rings are made from disembodied Barbie parts. Edgy? Subversive? Icky? Or all of the above? [$110-$185, Etsy]…

10 Favorite Dolls From Our Childhood

I was kind of obsessed with Barbie dolls when I was younger. Although I had over 50 Barbies, my mom knew we couldn’t leave a toy store without visiting the Barbie aisle. I didn’t get a new doll most of the time, but sometimes she would buy me a new Barbie outfit, which is just…

Barbie: Now With Even More Vinyl!

There’s some stiff competition, but the sluttiest Barbie of all time has just come out: Black Canary. It’s based on the comic book character and conservative Christian groups are pissed because the kids brand doll has been (even more) tricked out in this outfit — a vinyl teddy and knee high boots with fishnets. Doe…

Mattel Releases Barbie For The Birds

I hated Barbie as a fat kid, for obvious reasons. She was super skinny, had cooler clothes than me, hung out with yuppies, and her make-up looked like my evil babysitter’s. Back in the day, Barbie seemed like the suburban spawn of Satan in her perfect little princess castle. But now that I’m an adult,…

Barbie Is Ruining The World, Some Say

In a letter to Iran’s vice president, Prosecutor General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi writes that importing Western toys into the country is a “danger” that needs to be stopped. In Iran, importing Western toys is discouraged but not illegal, and many toys are smuggled into the country. Najafabadi says their increased visibility is worrisome: “The…
